NOVEMBER 16TH THROUGH JANUARY 20TH Impulse is a publicly activated light and sound experience. The project uses the idea of repetitive units of subtle light and sound that can be played by the public to create a temporal, ever‐changing event. Impulse embodies ideas of serialism, repetition, and variation to produce zones of intensity and calm. Your open space is transformed into a space of urban play through a series of interactive illuminated see‐saws that respond and transform when put into motion by people. When not in use, the see‐saws will stabilize to the horizontal and remain at a lower glowing level. When activated by users and inclined, the see‐saws, augmented by LED lights and speakers, will increase in light intensity and emit a randomized sound sequence. This variation in intensity aims to animate the public space and its occupants once night has fallen. Impulse will be an ever‐changing urban composition and urban instrument, in which city dwellers are the musicians and artists. dnc
